‘What Happens Next?’: Can We Learn to be More Civil? Episode 93

Press/Media: Blogs, Podcasts and Social MediaPodcasts

Description

The digital age has forced our interactions and discourse through a profound transformation. With the advent of social media and the power to connect with individuals worldwide, conversations and disagreements are magnified. But as our exchanges become increasingly digital, we must remember that behind every screen is a human being with emotions and vulnerabilities. In the final two-part series of its eighth season, Monash University's podcast, What Happens Next?, looks into navigating an increasingly uncivil world, and the potential consequences if we fail to change. In the last episode of the season, host Dr Susan Carland engages leading researchers in political science, psychology, education and sociology, as well as journalists and public commentators, who provide valuable insights into fostering a more civil society.
